Football legend Asamoah Gyan has started raising funds to support Funny Face.

This comes after the comedian, in a post via social media, said he has been unable to see his children for the past four years because he is broke.
He shared that due to his past struggles with depression, he has lost connections with several people who used to come to his aid.
Unfortunately, people in the entertainment industry have also spoken negatively about him, causing companies that used to give him work to lose interest in hiring him. This has made it difficult for him to find gigs that will provide for him.
Asamoah Gyan tweeted on X that he has reached out to the comedian and donated Ghc1,000.
He used the opportunity to call on the general public to support the comedian with any amount.
“I managed to call FUNNY FACE. He poured his heart out to me and I’m so touched. I decided to start a campaign to support the guy with 1000 momo on his number (0244812335).
